Great power and stunning looks

Cons

turning radious

Acura Tl — I love this car, but I hate it turning radious. Three point turns become 5-10 point turns and some U-turns are not possible. The only other problem I have had is with the sun visor, it rattled a bit, but Acura replaced and it seems to be better now.

The car is an excellent bang-for-your-buck luxury car.

Cons

Obviously doesn't have the latest and greatest features...

Great Car! — Excellent car for the investment! Performance is as good as you can expect from 270 hp. Great build quality, quiet. Looks great. Cheap to maintain; do all my own oil changes (it reminds you to based on how you drive it).

I Like My Acura — This car sounds great, looks good, and handles really well for a car just under $40k. The heated seats, nav system, and voice command offer the luxurious feel while the V6 will get you to around 155 mph.

Pros

A very comfortable and classy daily driver.  Probably the best car I have ever owned for all around versatility.  Driver position and controls are perfect.   Fantastic ergonomics.  Comfortable cruiser at 55, or over 100.

Cons

The rear seat doesn't fold down for access to the trunk like my old Accord did.

Affordable Luxury With Japanese Reliability. — I have loved this car from day one. I bought it new and have yet to find anything else in its price range that I would consider a viable contender. I will likely keep this car until the wheels fall off, or until Acura goes back to this design with a more efficient engined update.

Love It! — Love the acceleration and handling. Gets 25 MPG which isn't bad for a V6 that has 270 horsepower! Cost of ownership can be high, but is to be somewhat expected in a luxury car in this class. They are more expensive to buy as well!

Great Sporty Sedan! — I LOVE THIS CAR! It has been great, exceptional acceleration and handling, extreme comfort - every option except GPS, which I use on my phone anyway. Gets good gas mileage considering it's a 6 cylinder. TERRIFIC FUN TO DRIVE, LOVE IT!

Cons

Front wheel drive

Sporty Acura — This is a great car that drives nice and tight. It has all the horsepower I would want in a front wheel drive car. Anymore power and it wouldn't be very easy to control when you mash the throttle. It has a great sound system and very good looks.

One Of The Best Entry Level Luxury Cars In The Last 10 Years — I purchased this car from my parents in March 2010. In my opinion, it's one on the best looking cars on the road and better looking than the new generation TL. Great reliability, power, and refinement. 2004's are great values too since they look just like 2008's.

Cant Go Wrong With 3g Tl — The car has minor imperfections but runs and looks good. 0-60 in under 7 seconds and 1/4 mile in under 15 is not bad for a FWD 3.2 L engine. Drives just like when i bought it. Acura FTW.
